Lorna is a native of Kildare and now lives in Carrick-on-Suir, Tipperary. She works on canvas and paper with acrylic paint, pastel and acrylic marker. Lorna embraces a range of subjects in her artworks which are inspired by her dreams and also taken from her memory or travels to places like Australia, France, Denmark and America. Working with bright, bold colours, assured lines and repetitious patterns she paints and celebrates people and the world in general. From the young age of 5, when she poured a can of red paint over herself and a dull grey tractor, Lorna has considered herself an artist.

She has also shown internationally including in Scotland, Australia, Switzerland, Luxembourg, Germany, The Netherlands.
